You heard that right Gundam fans! The two seasons from 2007-2009, High Definition Anime is making a comeback sometime in the near future. According to ANN, during the “Gundam 00 Festival 10 Re: Vision Event” this past Saturday, Seiji Mizushima – the director for the Gundam 00 anime, announced he was working on a “project” that involved the acclaimed series. Although the medium for the series was not discussed at the time, a major store chain involved directly with the series, Animate, confirmed that the project is indeed a sequel. Whether it’s a movie or a short anime adaptation, Gundam 00 fans are still in for another adventure with the infamous Celestial Being Gundam Meisters. If you’re unfamiliar with the show, now is the best time to catch up. You can find the show currently streaming on Crunchyroll and Hulu currently.
It is the year A.D. 2307. Fossil fuels on Earth have been depleted entirely, with mankind turning to the next available power source: solar energy. During this time, 3 orbital elevators with solar power generation systems are built; each under control by the Union of Solar Energy and Free Nations (formerly United States of America), the Human Reform League (Russia, China and India) and the Advanced European Union. However, not all countries are able to enjoy the benefits of this system, leading to widespread resentment and war. Arising out of the conflict, a mysterious military organization known as Celestial Being appears, dedicated to end all warfare using Mobile Suits called Gundam. This begins the stories of Gundam Meisters (pilots) Setsuna F. Seiei, Lockon Stratos, Allelujah Haptism and Tiera Erde as they are thrown into conflict between the 3 superpowers and the various other factions.
